Seventh Day of Christmas: Seven swans a-swimming = seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
This is also New Year’s Day.

Happy New Year

Dear friends, the Seventh Day of Christmas is also New Year’s Day. My New Year’s Wish for you is that 2015 brings miracles into your life.

This image of Champagne being poured also inspired a bit of a post for this day, seeing way too many bubbles, from my perspective as it’s being poured. It doesn’t have to be this way, and it made me think of helpful tips for pouring bubbly wine.

  1. It’s critical to pour this wine slowly, so you don’t waste all of those bubbles that we see in these glasses, like the “head” on a mug of beer.
  2. The fewer bubbles that escape from the glass, the zippier your wine is going to taste. And, we all know that if it’s a bubbly wine, it’s pretty much mostly about the tiny bubbles.
  3. Tip the glass quite a bit, as you s-l-o-w-l-y pour the wine into your glass. This also keeps lots of bubbles from being wasted.
  4. Enjoy!
